Did 'dashboard complete' include the electronic control box or whatever Ford call theirs? It probably is that or a fault somewhere in the wring loom.

not sure , so you think it could be the body control module or loom ?
There seem to be too many totally unconnected items that show faults, all fused separately. That's what leads me to thinking loom or ECM.

I would guess it was just the instrument cluster that was changed, entire dash is a huge job and still probably would not include the BCM.

apart from the airbag light, fairly certain these are all on the 'mid speed can bus', so could be any component on that, or its loom.

question to OP: does the car have a 'black box' for insurance etc, or other obdII device?
